Series: IBM Mainframe Communications 2.4
IBM Mainframe Communications Concepts
The IBM Mainframe Communications Concepts course provides an overview of traditional SNA and TCP/IP communication protocols and the logical and physical components associated with them.
The VTAM commands course discusses the use of commands to display the status and attributes of VTAM resources. An explanation of the processes used to start, activate, deactivate and stop VTAM resources is also provided.
Mainframe TCP/IP Commands
This course provides the learner with a basic understanding of IBM mainframe networks with z/OS. It introduces traditional SNA subarea, SNA APPN networks and mainframe TCP/IP networks, including some of the network equipment associated with each. Current topics such as the future of SNA, and concepts of using TCPIP to transport SNA traffic are also covered. Finally, the learner is introduced to basic VTAM and TCP/IP commands needed to use, control and investigate mainframe networks.
VTAM Command Simulations
A number of simulations are provided that the student can use to assess their skills and knowledge in relation to the entering of commands, and interpretation of output produced, when monitoring and managing VTAM.
